LANSING, Mich. (WILX) - The suspect in a home invasion on W. Taft Rd in Bingham Township was arraigned on multiple charges in 65th District Court in St. Johns on Thursday.

On Wednesday, the Clinton County Sheriff’s Office was dispatched to a home invasion call in the 1000 block of W. Taft Rd. The occupant of the home had called 911 after finding that a male had entered their home and attempted to tie them up while assaulting them.
The occupant and another resident fought the suspect, pushing him outside. They secured their residence while calling 911 and the suspect fled in a pickup truck.
Clinton County Deputies along with Michigan State Police searched the area and located the unoccupied truck in a wooded area approximately one mile from the initial scene.
Following a search of surrounding buildings, the suspect was found trying to steal a vehicle and was apprehended. The Sheriff’s Office says that Flores appeared to be under the influence as he was taken into custody.
Flores, 52, is being held at the Clinton County Jail on no bond. His next court date is set for July 8.
